About Collision Brewing Company
What a night at Collision tonight! We had the best turnout EVER (in my 2+ years as Quizmaster); we had to bring in folding tables and even then we had a team seated at the bar and another turned away...the next step would have been a visit from the Fire Marshall! Twelve teams and 58 players!! Trebek's Rejects had so many players that they split into 2 teams, and Rejects 2.0 were high scorers in Round 1 with 6 of a possible 6; #momjeans, 4-Way Stop and the original Rejects all tallied 5 to tie for 2nd thru 1 round. Butterbeer Beaches were the only team to correctly name all 8 images in the Picture Round, moving them into 1st place by 2 points in front of both of the Trebek's Rejects teams; 4-Way Stop were a point back in 4th with Trivia Trumps Debates a further point behind in 5th. No fewer than 4 teams scored 6 of a possible 6 in Round 3, with Cammie Hates The Cello and Jeffrey Dahmer's House Of Ribs joining Butterbeer Beaches and Rejects 2.0 as high scorers; Beaches were the leaders at this stage but 6 teams were within 6 points of the lead. Round 4 (Guess Who) was where some separation arose. Trivia Trumps Debates and 1st-timers No Brainers each took a -1, Limoncello and Cammie Hates The Cello each declined to turn in while Slingers and 4-Way Stop scored 2 apiece; all of those teams were relegated to the second division of the standings for the rest of the night. Afterthought and Trebek's Rejects (original) each answered correctly for 6 points while Butterbeer Beaches, #momjeans and Rejects 2.0 all scored 8. (Afterthought found their stride, finishing with 6-6-6-5 over the final 4 rounds) At this point Beaches led #momjeans by 3 and Rejects 2.0 by 5. In the Find The Connection Round (#5) Butterbeer Beaches, Trivia Trumps Debates and Trebek's Rejects each scored 9 of a possible 10, with the original Rejects and 4-Way Stop tallying 8; Slingers and Limoncello each scored 7. #momjeans went for a double and failed, dropping them from contention for the duration. First-timers No Brainers had to leave after Round 5 but went out with a bang, scoring 10 of a possible ten to top all teams. Butterbeer Beaches were still in the lead, by 2 over Rejects 2.0 and by 6 over the original Rejects. In the Handout Round Butterbeer Beaches scored 9 of a possible 10 (as did #momjeans, who said they had learned their lesson the previous round and happily did not double) but were leapfrogged (after leading all night) by Trebek's Rejects 2.0, who notched the first successful double-or-nothing of the night to jump a full 9 points in front of the pack; Beaches still led 3rd place Trebek's Rejects by 9 points. The final round had another surprise in store; Trebek's Rejects scored 9 of a possible 10 to coast home with the win with 65 points, while Butterbeer Beaches tallied a 7 to finish in 2nd place, 11 points back. But Jeffrey Dahmer's House Of Ribs, in the middle of the pack all evening, hit a successful double to vault past the original Rejects, nosing them out for 3rd place by 4 points.
A huge thank you to all who turned out tonight, and to the staff at Collision for scrambling to both accommodate a crowd that size AND serve everyone so flawlessly. The back room at Collision is booked for a private event next week but we will be back on January 16th to do it all again. See you then!
